I was really hoping he would be a good reggae artist. But nope.

The genre itself has never exactly set the world ablaze, and Snoop Dogg like it or not will actually bring some attention to reggae which hasn't been big since the skinheads of the 80's picked it up.

I'm anxious to see what Snoop does, chances are it won't be good but at least we're seeing something from the genre which isn't just another 'best of compilation' stemming from The Wailors.

Here's the new Snoop track for those who haven't heard it.

Reggae has never really been big within the mainstream and set the world ablaze and even regarding Bob Marley the attention on him was much more focused after his death. It is and will probably always be a minority sub genre and for every ten listeners I expose any form of Reggae to I will be lucky for 1 person to like it or even 'get' it.

That Snoop track is awful and that has nothing to do with who he is or what music he has made before.

Reggae, like Soul music isn't just a genre of music. It's a statement and a way of life and you can't just add a couple of skanking beats onto a track and expect everyone to love it, especially when you are taking the root of becoming a recognised and respected artist within that genre.

I've never liked Snoop, but even trying to get around that fact and judge his new stuff on merit I still hate it. And I'm only really into generic reggae as it is..

In America Reggea is really huge in NY, on you typical radio station where they play rap, R&B, and pop they play a good ammount of reggea especially dancehall. I grew up with it and when i moved to cali i didnt hear a bit of reggea out there. what im trying to say is this. Even tho Snoop Lions reagea sucks he could possibly bring it to different places around America atleast because he has a huge name already, but he needs to do it right. In a way he is kinda bringing Reggea into the mainstream

Hmmm not to go against the entire flow, but as someone who was once heavily into reggae I actually don't think he sounds that bad, he's got a bit of a Barry Brown, Mickey Dread vibe happening there.

I know it comes off as a laughable joke, but I do think he's serious. I saw him last summer in one of his last shows as Snoop Dogg and it was not a good concert, you could tell his heart wasn't into it, and he ended busting out some reggea I'm going to give Snoop Lion a shot before I write him off.

I think his writing has improved compared to his last few albums lyrics.
